Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Deborah Specialty Physicians is taking a number of steps to protect its patients and employees during the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

As such, effective March 17th, we are screening visitors for travel or any current illness, and, if confirmed, not be permitted to remain in the office. Limit of one family member may accompany the patient to the office visit.

Deborah Specialty Physician practices are closely monitoring guidelines and recommendation based on the New Jersey Department of Health to ensure our efforts to protect the community are coordinated. The NJ Department of Health has established a 24/7 hotline at 800-222-1222, staffed with trained healthcare professionals to answer your COVID-19 questions.

If you believe you, or a family member, has symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please call your doctor’s office prior to your appointment. Once you arrive, immediately notify the desk of your symptoms and that you think you may have COVID-19.
